Eventually, Stabbing Westward went to Los Angeles, California, and began to work on their 1998 album, called Darkest Days. The album was envisioned by the band as a story told in four acts. “Save Yourself” the first single off the album had some success. After the album, Stabbing Westward went on to continue to tour with groups such as Placebo, Monster Magnet, The Cult, and Depeche Mode. They would also go on to play in some summer festivals.
